Part Number: OPA313
Tool/software: TINA-TI or Spice Models
I was wondering what ways I could increase my phase margin in the circuit below keeping the same FET (PM is ~27). I know decreasing the gate to source capacitance by picking a different FET helps as does lowering the 1ohm resistor value. I was wondering what other options are available to me? Thank you!
There are two options. The first is to add an isolation resistor between the output of the amplifier and FET. The second is to use a topology called Riso with dual feedback. Riso with dual feedback will give a more DC accurate solution but may not be needed based on your design requirements.
The reference design "1% Error, 0-5 V input, 0-500 mA Output, Low-Side Voltage-to-Current (V-I) Converter" discusses adding an isolation resistor to stabilize (increase the phase margin) the amplifier.
The reference design "High-Side Voltage-to-Current (V-I) Converter" discusses designing with Riso with dual feedback topology.
Additionally, I recommend watching out TI Precision Lab videos on Op Amp Stability which discuss both the Riso and Riso with dual feedback topologies.
